Hi, My name is Nicole aka Nikki. I am a 27-year-old female who has been babysitting since I was only 11 years old. In high school, I worked with and taught mentally challenged kids for a little over 2 years (i. e. autistic, Bipolar, Tourette's, ADD and ADHD). I used to work at a daycare. I cared for children who were between the ages of 2 weeks through 3 years old. While working with these children, I changed diapers, prepared meals, did arts and crafts, sang songs, and played games. We also had our learning time where I taught the children their letters, numbers, shapes, colors, days of the week, body parts, etc. I am also good with potty training. I was a nanny for a family with 3 children for almost a year, but had to end it, because they were relocating to another state. Then I became a nanny for a little boy for a few months, but it was only part-time, so I had to end that unfortunately for a full-time position. Not long after I became a full-time nanny for a family with 5 children and only lasted roughly 2 weeks because every day my hours were being changed and I was being shorted pay and was offered another full-time position for a fantastic family with only one child until their 2nd child was born. I was with them for 1 year and 8 months, I miss them dearly though. I have a few side/occasional weekend babysitting positions as well. I do drive a very nice reliable 2007 Chevy Uplander minivan for any kind of transportation needed, and I have a clean driving record. I also have extra car seats for all ages. I have 3 years experience in cleaning as well. I do bathrooms, kitchens, laundry and dusting, etc. I used to be a coach and referee for basketball for 3rd graders when I attended high school. I am not your TV watching kind of babysitter/nanny either. I do enjoy reading books, when I get down time, cleaning house, and cooking. I love to cook. But I also like to just get out of the house, enjoy the nice weather, go to the zoo, park and sometimes to the mall in the play areas when it's not so nice outside, along with the many different libraries there are to attend. I am certified in First Aid and CPR. I have taken Child Development classes and also Child Psychology classes in both high school and college. I am a strong leader, self starter and good at multitasking.

Every job I have ever had has been in childcare or teaching because this is what I love to do! I began babysitting when I was about 13 years old. Over the years, I have gotten experience with children of pretty much every age. I also worked in a daycare/learning center for a few years where I cared for children ages infant to 12 years old. I recently graduated from college with a degree in Education, and while in school, I had internships in 7th and 8th grade classrooms. Lastly, I am currently a substitute teacher in a 7th grade classroom.
